Fire up the DeLorean, 2015 might just be the Chicago Cubs’ year — just like “Back to the Future II” predicted in 1989.
Feel free to poke holes in the prediction, even if Maddon does look a little like Doc Brown with more hair. For one thing, the movie has the Cubs (who last won the Series in 1908) sweeping in five games, which makes it a best-of-nine Series. Both the Miami and Chicago teams are in the National League. So either cataclysmic change is coming soon to baseball or “BTTF II” won’t be totally accurate. And the Cubs, after their big week at the winter meetings, aren’t anything like a 100-1 shot to win the Series.
VegasInsider.com has ’em at 10-1 to win it all.
